unconstitutional by that local trial court judge last month. that's because of a new law that the nra supported in louisiana last year. a new law that singles out gun laws and gun regulations for special scrutiny by the courts. essentially, gun laws in louisiana now are presumed to be unconstitutional unless proven otherwise. including the one about felons. when the law was first proposed, the bureau of governmental research, which is kind of like the congressional research service at the state level, they do nonpartisan review of legislation and policy for the state of louisiana, this nonpartisan analysts in this state said don't do this thing the nra wants us to do. they urged people to vote against this change in the law. they said, there's no good reason to enter this uncharted territory. they said, changing the law like this, quote, would expose the h. republican governor bobby jindal, though, supported it. he said, it's time we protected our freedom. now that it turns out that what he was protecting was the ability of convicted felons to legally possess ak-47s, governor bobby jindal put o

think we would not even be able to get background checks which are so popular with the majority of nra members? >> i questioned whether this bill would come through with the senate. i was sure it would die in the house. 90% of democrats voted for it. 90% of republicans voted against it. it was not an universal background check bill. it was temporarily requiring background checks at gun shows and on the internet congress was perfectly happy letting criminals and terrorists and mentally ill continue to buy guns in 33 states from private gun dealers without background checks. and even before the vote came up they stripped out two of the most important aspects the assault weapons ban and the ban on high capacity ammunition magazines which would have prevented another new town from happening. no universal background checks. no ban on military style weapons. no ban on high magazine clips which is the common denominator in mass shootings. we see how broken the it is when they have manipulated our congress in high fiving because criminals, terrorists can continue to buy guns without background

: indeed. you wrote about the g.o.p.'s needs. like the nra to instill fear in the public. can you explain that in the immigration reform? >> well, we've seen it so often over the years. conservatives need a boogeyman. they need to get worked up about something, come group of people or some set of events and make people react to that and say oh, my god we've got to do something to stop this. you know we've got to do something to stop brown people from coming over the border. it was true going back to civil rights. then of course after 9/11 and after any terrorist attack there is a certain element within the republican party and conservative movement that is going to rise up and say see we have to cut off immigration. we have to do this, we have to do that. you know, it's how they play. it's how they play, and it's how they get votes. but i think it's pretty much a minority opinion in this instance. >> john: it certainly made everyone forget senator marco rubio's 47 appearances on sunday's talk shows. thank you for your excellent piece and thank you as always for your insight. >> always a p

for. he's now the lobbyist for the nra. at least when he was in congress, he was considered a reasonable man. his statement was not reasonable. in fact, it wasn't even accurate. in fact, as joe man chin, the author of the bill, said yesterday, anybody that suggested that private gun sales, individual sales from one person to another, a family member or another, a friend to another, would be outlawed or would have to even go through this sort of check is lying. the nra statement is a lie. and i am ashamed of chris cox this morning that he would, for whatever reason, i won't even -- i won't even try to speculate as to why he felt it necessary to lie about what was in this bill. but he did. so the nra, unfortunately, to the very end, from the morning we found out that 20 children were slaughtered and six educators were slaughtered at sandy hook until last night, the nra has acted shamefully, putting out violent video games that 4-year-old kids could play with guns, making horrific statements. the nra is just absolutely behaved shame loessly and they will, of course, pay a cost

that it won't happen again. >> the big barrier that keeps coming up is the nra, and they have been explicit they don't want any universal background checks, they don't want anything. you had a high rating from the nra. an "a" and b-plus in the past. you are making an enemy of the nra now with what you're doing and they will come after you, won't they? >> well, they may, and probably at some point. here's the good news on that, piers. the country has come together in ways that i don't think we have ever seen in recent history. most of the country understands that like we have in pennsylvania -- we've got more than 1 million gun owners in pennsylvania. it's part of our tradition, part of our culture. and it's very positive in our state. and i think we can say to those gun owners, we want to respect your rights in every way that is possible under our system. you can have a gun for protection, and a lot of people need a gun for protection. you can have a gun to engage in hunting or sporting. you can do that within the limits and within what we will vote on the next couple days. i think we've go

the country are outraged to see the nra sponsoring tonight's nascar sprint cup. it's called the nra 500. some people say it's just too soon after newtown and interf e interferes with the gun violence debate and one connecticut senator is asking fox sports not to broadcast it. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti is at the texas motor speedway in ft. worth. i can imagine there's mixed reaction to this, right? >> reporter: shaure. this is a hugely popular event for racing fans. a lot of people here already camping out and they expect at least 200,000 people physically here to attend this event. the fact is there are questions swirling about around the nra's sponsorship of this event and negotiated by the texas motor speedway here and sanctioned by and approved by nascar. it comes down to as you said timing because of the timing of this race given the gun control debate that's going on right now on capitol hill. senator chris murphy of connecticut is someone who is saying that maybe it's just inappropriate to be holding this nra race at this time at least a race called the nra. thinks tha

's the state that we're in now. the n.r.a., even though there is a compromise now between a republican and democratic, i think it's an incredibly weak compromise. the n.r.a. said no, no, no, not good enough, should it fail to do so, the nra will make an exception to our standard policy of not scoring procedural votes and strongly oppose to cloture motion. they're saying that not only are we opposed to this, even though it's an incredibly watered down compromise if they do not filibuster it at the end of the debate, then we will count that against them. so, as the democrats reach out and reach out and reach out constantly all the n.r.a. does is slap their olive branch away and meet it with all their weapons. all right now we're going to bring in a panel to discuss all this. they're going to be with us throughout the show. let me introduce editor of i can't lieu news, and we have lee fang, and joe williams. great to have you all here. guys leme also read you president obama's quote here, so you get a contrast between the n.r.a. and president obama: cenk: so, joe let me start with you on

in the eyes and see their impassioned plea and not be called into action. for too long the nra and other gun groups have had a lock on congress. they've been able to intimidate them from doing what's right. now you got these newtown families who have come to congress as victim survivors and are putting faces on these numbers. and it's very powerful and i'm just grateful to them for having the courage to do it. >> there really is a counter weight right now the nra, a coalition not only the unified people of noun the families showing in the home also your former colleague gabrielle giffords will thereabout on capitol hill next week to push for expanded background checks. this saturday organize for action and mayors against illegal action holding events asking americans to pass common sense measures. specifically you're drafting your own piece of legislation. i want to talk about that because it's called the speier gun control bill. it will create gun violence health care trust fund. i want will create a fund to pay for public costs paid for by an excise tax on guns and ammunition. >> with the

website. >> the nra calls for training school teachers to carry firearms. the nra commissioned a task force on school violence headed by a former congressman. he released a plan today in washington, armed guards and armed teachers would allow for a quick response to a school shooting. >> good morning. i am asa hutchinson and i welcome you to this important presentation to increase school safety. i received a call last december from the nra. they asked if i would be interested in leading an effort on school safety. we arrived at a agreement which is my mandate. we will not have any predetermined outcomes. we would have the full support to employ the experts to develop a review of our national efforts on school safety and make the recommendations as appropriate. the nra has fulfilled their side of the bargain. they have given us the support needed to reach their product that we are presenting today. there is no guarantee the nra will accept these recommendations. these are the recommendations of the task force. i did want to introduce the members of the task force that are here today. w

. that was even one step too far for the nra. what they were also doing was drawing everybody into the debate. come on in. then we'll show you what we can do. then they put the hammer down on this vote that kasie's talking about where they said, yes, we're scoring this one. we're going to hold you accountable for this one. that's one of the main reasons -- >> that's politically. not that they're the good guys, they're not. but that's a good sign of smart politics. otherwise if they had said let's score the debate, these guys would look like real bad guys. >> they would look -- they would look like they were afraid. >> go ahead and vote, but we're voting against you. >> that's exactly what they do. >> kasie, let's go through some cases. i'm always amazed by john mccain. there's a good john mccain, not so good john mccain. let's go to the good john mccain. he's really the only red stater of his party to cross the aisle and vote with basically gun safety people. and he's from arizona. what do you know about that? >> and one of the only westerners as well. >> only westerner. >> this was a pretty

anything at all to do with guns. this small but intense group is made up of the gun industry, the nra and for lack of a better word, let's say gun enthusiasts. and the main thing you need to remember any time you're trying to wrap your head around gun policy in this country is what you see in these two charts. okay. one shows the number of guns that exist in this country going up while the other shows simultaneously the number of gun-owning households is going down. what that means is more and more guns are being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands. more people are not buying new guns, more gun owners are buying more new guns. and that smaller group of people is more intensely interested in defending a zero regulation vision of gun rights. for a long time, that smaller and smaller number of people with more and more guns have been able to bully everybody else into going along with their vision of a largely unregulated firearms marketplace. but then there was the shooting of then congresswoman gabrielle giffords and 19 others in tucson which left six of those victims dead, including
